Earl Grey (Bergamot Italian Orange) with a hint of herb garden make a pleasant, light fragrance. Unisex.
No Tox Life extra-strength aluminum-free and paraben-free vegan deodorants are designed to keep you fresh with a very light application. Since they only need one light swipe per armpit, they last much longer than ordinary deodorants.
How it works: It has enzymes to help zap the odor-causing bacteria, and bamboo extract to help absorb excess wetness. Each puck or cube will glide on lightly and smoothly.
New extra strength formula: This concentrated deodorant is strong and effective. Use only one light swipe per armpit.
Transition period from aluminum deodorant: Aluminum based antiperspirants include big brand products, as well as alternative products like crystal sticks, alum sticks and mineral salt sticks. When switching away from these, you might experience a detox effect for a few days to a couple weeks. To purchase the detox underarm bar click here.
What we mean by detoxing is: you may be more stinky and sweaty at first while your body is ridding itself of the buildup that has accumulated with antiperspirant use. Antiperspirants block the pores so sweat (and toxins) can’t get out. Your body needs to sweat to remove waste.
Re-apply as needed: You may want to reapply during the first few weeks until the detoxing is finished. To reapply, first wipe the area dry, then just use one light swipe to refresh your protection. After the detox period, the deodorant should last 8 hours without need to reapply.
Zero Waste Large Cube (no packaging or holder - store in airtight container otherwise it will get dry and hard to apply over time) | 3.5 oz | can last up to 6 to 12 months with regular use
Zero Waste Travel Size (no packaging or holder - store in airtight container otherwise it will get dry and hard to apply over time) | 1 oz | can last up to 2 to 4 months with regular use
If you shave, wax or epilate, or for sensitive skin: As with any deodorant, we do not recommend applying directly after shaving or hair removal, and we recommend using an extra layer of cream or moisturizer (a small bit of shea butter works great) first if the skin is particularly sensitive and prone to irritation. Apply the moisturizer or oil or butter first then apply the deodorant.
What to do if it dries out: Each deodorant is made with vegan ingredients, in small batches. Since there is a high amount of aloe vera juice, it may evaporate over time and the stick will become drier, and glide less. This doesn't mean it's no longer working - it still will work and be effective. You can re-hydrate it by spritzing with water or using a wet finger to get the “slippery” feeling again.
Store in airtight container: For the unpackaged deodorants, keep it in an airtight container to prevent the aloe vera juice from evaporating. This is especially a factor in dry climates.
High heat: Keep your deodorant out of direct heat or sun (for example your car in the summer) because your deodorant could melt at very high temperatures.

It was a present on my adult son’s Christmas list. I was doubtful that deodorant was a good idea as a gift, but it was on his list. To my surprise and delight, he was genuinely overjoyed. It was his favorite gift. — Satisfied Santa
The Charcoal Detox is amazing! I was having armpit odor issues and wow, I am super impressed that it has worked. No matter what body soap or bar soap I was using before or how hard I was scrubbing the odor was still there. But not anymore!!!! Totally worth it and I’ll be ordering again!
I love this deodorant!! I am NEVER going back to my normal deodorant. Not only is it great for me, it's great to reduce personal plastic usage. My skin gets irritated very easily and this has caused no problems. One thing I will say is that the scent of the bar is kind of strong. But, I am very sensitive to smell so that might be why I noticed it more. My sister who is not bothered by fragrance sees no problem with it. Plus I got used to it eventually. I highly recommend buying this, it does the trick! Get the detox bar as well to pair with if the deodorant is not doing the trick- you might need to extract toxins from your armpits!
